Jeepers Creepers: Reborn
Has it been 23 years already? The Creeper makes his return a bit early in Jeepers Creepers: Reborn in this follow-up from the successful 2001’s horror film Jeepers Creeper that starred Justin Long and Gina Philips.
Of course, this is a franchise that spawned several sequels, including Jeepers Creepers 2 and 2017’s Jeepers Creepers III. There was even a documentary Jeepers Creepers: Then and Now on this caped bat-winged creature.
Although The Creeper never made any top-five lists for horror franchise characters—it has its own cult following for its look, old truck, and the iconic song that suddenly plays on the radio.
The new film stars Sydney Craven, Imran Adams, Ocean Navarro, Matt Barkley, Alexander Halsall, Jodie McMullen, Georgia Goodman, and Jarreau Benjamin. Timo Vourensola directed the film from a script written by Sean- Michael Argo and Jake Seal.
Here’s the official synopsis for Jeepers Creepers: Reborn:
Chase and Laine head to the Horror Hound festival where Laine begins to experience unexplained premonitions and disturbing visions associated with The Creeper and the town’s past. As the festival gets underway and the blood-soaked entertainment builds to a frenzy, Laine believes that something unearthly has been summoned for the first time in 23 years and that she is at the center of it.
Jeepers Creepers: Reborn takes the franchise in a new direction with its original creator Victor Salva. The original movie was a commercial success, but its sequels floundered a bit. Maybe a refreshing new take from a new director and writers should manage to revive the franchise. Word has it that Jeepers Creepers: Reborn is the first film of a new planned trilogy.
No release date has been announced yet except that it’s coming out sometime next year.
